This book describes a reentry and transition group planning process for incarcerated people to guide their own “safety plans.” An imprisoned person voluntarily invites her loved ones, along with a prison representative, to meet in a facilitated Circle process provided by a community organisation. The Circle is based on public health learning principles, and applies restorative justice and solution focused brief therapy concepts. (excerpt)
